Tri-State Opening A Great Kickoff to Summer
Excited that "Come Dance!", my one-man show at the Artport Gallery at the Tallahassee International Airport was installed by COCA on July 18th. It will remain in that wonderful, expansive public gallery (across from ticketing) until September 10th. With nearly 30 watercolors, oils, and pastels, many of the pieces have not been shown before. Featuring dancers of all varieties and forms, it calls on color, movement, and my own knowledge of and affinity for dance. (Parking is free at the airport for the first 30 minutes.)
